a book is a loaded gun

Literary Tattoos: Ray Bradbury Fahrenheit 451

This is Tim’s tattoo.

This tattoo is a quote from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

“A book is a loaded gun in the house next door. Burn it. Take the shot from the weapon. Breach man’s mind. Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?”

I have always felt that the more well-read a person is, the more he can control his/her own life without the aid of others who may choose to use a gun instead of a book.
